Having a twin sister is wonderful, we share imaginary tea every Sunday afternoon, strut our stuff in matching outfits, and beat the shit out of each other during our regular weekly fights. Well, I guess those things happened only when we were little girls.
We still fight, though.
Having a twin sister isn't as magical as people make it out to be. We're just your normal pair of siblings, with sorta the same-looking face. We're different individuals, with different interests, talents, and personalities. And thankfully, very different taste in men.
"Do You Have A Twin Sister? I Could Have Sworn I Just Saw Someone Walk By Who Looks JUST LIKE YOU!"
Deny. Deny. Deny.
And make strangers feel like they're losing their minds. During high school, my sister and I played this game where we would tell people that we didn't haven't a twin sister.
"I saw someone who looks like you."
"Yeah. Do you have a twin?"
"That's really weird. I am the only child. So..."
"Maybe I am going crazy."
Goodness, those were the fun days.
"You Two Must Get Along So Well!"
My twin sister and I used to fist fight with each other. Yes, fist fight. Like, I bled once. We love each other, but my god, we hated each other just as much.
We were so competitive in every way. It was the battle of "who's the better twin." My sister was super great at school. I was great at exams. She was the math-and-science nerd. I was the twin who was pretty damn good at writing.
We called each other "bitch" "asshole" and "the-ugliest-piece-of-shit-on-the-planet"
But goodness forbid if an outsider agreed with us. Outsiders did not have the right to call one or the other nasty names. #Siblingprivilege
Gross Guys: "You Have A Twin? How About A Threesome?"
You do realize that my twin sister is in fact...my SISTER. And that would be incest. And that's so fucking gross, I can't even. I can't even tell you how many times I've gotten this question. We're not going to make your twin sex fantasy come true. GOOD BYE!
This Much Is True: We Have A Strong Bond Nobody Could Ever Understand
The bond between me and my sister is incredibly strong. We protect each other, support each other, and love each other. We will always be there for each other. No matter how much we fight WITH each other, we'll always fight FOR each other.
She's my rock. And she's basically the most amazing person I know.
